A British teenager has been arrested and is expected to appear in a UK court after he posted about the injustice of the occupation of Afghanistan on his Facebook page.
Following the death s of six UK soldiers in Afghanistan earlier this month, Azhar Ahmed from Ravensthrope left his comment on the social networking site in order to indicate the hypocrisy of praising the UK soldiers, while thousands of Afghan civilians killed at the hand of western troops who have occupied the country for over ten years claiming to protect the civilians.
“What about the innocent families who have been brutally killed?” he posted on his page. “The women who have been raped, the children who have been sliced up?”
“Your enemies were the Taliban not innocent families,” he continued.
According to the official figure, foreign troops killed 410 civilians and injured 335 just in 2011. There are scores of cases of the foreign troops who carried out various sexual related crimes on Afghans and female soldiers. Earlier in January, two British soldiers were detained over allegations that they sexually abused two 10-year-old children and filmed the event to show it off to their fellow soldiers.
On the same day Ahmad posted his remarks, a Facebook page was created titled “Azhar Ahmed Scumbag” and reported the comments of the 19-year-old to the police. The next day Ahmed was arrested and charged and is to appear in Dewsbury magistrates’ court on March 20th.
A spokesperson for Yorkshire police said that Ahmed was charged with “racially aggravated public order offence,” admitting, “He didn’t make his point very well and that is why he has landed himself in bother.”
Keelan Balderson from Wide Shut website wondered whether the British troops are a race. “He did not use any racial terms. Or is that he himself is not British bred? In that case who is stirring up the racial hatred? Ahmed or the police trying to pigeon hole the incident?”
“Although we do not have a crystal ball I’d make the bet that if his name was David Smith he probably wouldn’t have been charged.” Source
Everyone should Realize that everyone is under Surveillance by the UK that go to Facebook. They also monitor other social media I would imagine.
It is also obvious the people in the UK, have lost their Freedom of Speech as well.
If there is any racial profiling happening it is against Azhar Ahmed.
Many people have said many of the same thing he did.
He is correct in saying a lot of praise goes to soldiers and not enough is said about the innocent victims who have been killed by soldiers.
In 2009 however
A senior British Army officer has been arrested in Kabul and faces charges under the Official Secrets Act for allegedly leaking figures about civilian casualty figures in Afghanistan to a human rights group. For the rest of that story
It does seem that ll governments involved have wanted that kept a secret.–
Between Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, etc millions of civilians, have been killed.
Like Libya, Syria is now being invaded by outsiders and the So called Rebels are being given weapons also from outsiders.
Syria is being invaded by other countries.
Don’t beleive all the propaganda, being dished out by some of the main stream media. They are not telling you the truth.
Journalists walked out, because they were made to lie or not report the truth. Basically the same thing.
Syria did have a referendum. They will be having Elections.
The majority of the people in Syria, support their leader.
Millions were out in support of their leader, a few days ago.
Millions went out to protest against NATO in Libya, but that was never aired on the main stream media.
The Rebel/Terrorists are killing many, innocent civilians.
Syria it attempting to keep the people safe, They are not murdering their civilians.
The Terrorist invaders are.
Don’t believe everything you are told by deceptive media.
Above all protect your Freedom of speech.
